Today it’s my spot on the blog tour for author Lorraine Mace, and her debut novel Retriever of Souls.
Author Lorraine Mace was born and raised in South East London, Lorraine lived and worked in South Africa, on the Island of Gozo and in France before settling on the Costa del Sol in Spain. She lives with her partner in a traditional Spanish village inland from the coast and enjoys sampling the regional dishes and ever-changing tapas in the local bars. Her knowledge of Spanish is expanding. To stop her waistline from doing the same, she runs five times a week.
Her debut novel is ‘Retriever of Souls’ and it introduces us to DI Paolo Sterling. This novel is described as the start of a dark and gritty crime series, which is a pretty good description as this is certainly a rather grim story. The book is written from both the point of view of the Detective and the killer. The killer believes that sex is the devil’s work and is trying to save his victims souls. This is a good story that certainly isn’t for the feint hearted.
When not working on the D.I. Sterling series of crime novels, Lorraine is engaged in many writing-related activities. She is a columnist for both Writing Magazine and Writers’ Forum and is head judge for Writers’ Forum monthly fiction competitions.
